It’s been a week and a half since I deleted my Instagram. It’s been quite a shock to be honest, but I’m assuming I’ll get over it…
Get over the addiction to check my phone constantly,
Get over the new absence of notifications…
Get over the fear of falling dangerously off the face of the earth and having no idea what’s going on in the world!
Oh dear, it really is a shame. Such a shame what social media has done to the world. Come on, I know I’m not alone on this!
So yes, I have a confession. I did relapse and sign into my other IG account! BUT! I had to log onto the internet, and it wasn’t the same. I didn’t have to post a blogger photo, I didn’t feel the need to scroll down to the last photo I remember, I didn’t have to like every photo I saw, and I certainly didn’t spend more than 5 minutes of my precious time on it.
I have deleted the app on my phone, so this has definitely made a difference. I can’t even see if my business IG account is receiving notifications. I was literally bored on the exercise bike at the gym and thought “oh I’ll just sign in and have a look at Insta on the web!”
The weird thing is, an overwhelming part of me feels like I’m cheating on myself! Lol. Like I’m being deceptive and my good side is going to know exactly what the bad side is up to!
Anyway, I guess what I’m trying to say is; “look, I do have a business Instagram. This is strictly business related. I won’t be posting photos of my personal life, I won’t be posting stories so any tom dick and Harry can see what I’m up to. I’ll be leaving this account in its place. Safely up in the IT clouds somewhere, until I feel a necessary sales post is due.”
I still feel exactly the same way about my personal Instagram as I did last week. This cleanse is good.
And it will continue…
